just thought i’d let you know that…
Posted in pia's photos October 2nd, 2008 by piablog


It’s been raining for 5 days straight now. I did venture out today, and came home completely soaked to the bone. It appears winter has come early. Meanwhile, one friend just wrote to tell me she is in Bali, another told me he has just returned from the Maldives, and my Sydney friends keep telling me how goddamn hot it is at the moment. Northern Europe, what are you doing to me?


PS I have been nesting, big time. And am hoping to have a finished result to shoot before all the leaves fall off the trees, and all the sun rays turn to ice. So hopefully some sneak peeks of all the new changes in le petit bateau will be ready for your viewing pleasure in the not too distant future!

PPS I’ve always loved this song.

PPS something fun for you tomorrow! xx

PPPS how are you? what’s happening? how is your morning/afternoon /evening cuppa?

    It’s been raining here for too long too! We had about a week of glorious autumnal cool sunshine, but now it’s disappeared and winter is here! Boo!

    It’s been raining in New York too – it just cleared up today and THANK GOD because I was going nutsy fagen.

    Right now I’m drinking coffee and watching Sarah Palin playing the flute in the 1984 Miss America pageant. It is more than a little excruciating.

    Looking forward to seeing the outcome of all your nesting!

    you are right, it’s best to stay home. And now I’m not going to arrange things when I say that even in Paris it was a most-of-the-time-sunny-day 🙂 but it’s cold !
    I’ve been working a lot today, a whole new series for my Etsy shop coming soon ! j’adore l’ambiance de la photo.

    ah, merci sofia, et oui il fait trés froid!

    persephone, I love that you were on the verge of becoming a “nutsy fagen”. That is my new favourite term. oh how you make me laugh.

    helen, where are you? it seems winter has hit us all early, and summer has hit down under early.

    Sorry to disappoint the northern hemisphere but “acá abajo” (“down under” in spanish) the weather is getting better. But it has rained the whole week, so I sympathize with you. 🙂

    My tea today was inti-zen´s tea with honey, cocoa and vanilla. Yumm.

    Here are some sun rays for all of you!

    oh today is the first real day of cold…max 14c…and needless to say….i am in such a bad mood….i loooooooooong for the sun and some heat. (now i could kick myself that i dared once this summer complain that it was hot!)…and yes, i know, i know…i live in montréal, so this is normal but….so i can just imagine how blah it is with 5 days of rain!

    Your piano nook looks so warm, cozy and inviting. I should like to sit down with a cup of tea and just listen. Today is a beautiful fall day in my part of the world but I have been stuck inside the past few days with the flu!

    I’d be happy to take some of that rain for you! We need badly over here. My tomatoes are on their last leg and could use some rain! Love that picture!

    Honestly I “pray” for rain. Its been over 100 degrees the last two days in LA. Its so dry, forest fires now. Wake every morning, so puffy and thirsty. I suppose thats what happens when you basically live in a desert. Drinking lots of Nettle tea (trying something new) but think I’ll be back to a Black Eye with two shots of espresso tomorrow!

    Dear Pia if it makes you feel any better it is raining here too. I love the rain but not the relentless cloud and cold that accompanies it here. I really can’t handle cold. Not the best for a skating instructor I know but I love my job. I will hope for sunny skies for you.

    well here in sydney it is 35’C ! and yes seems like summer has come early. i cant have tea lol too hot. but apparently there is going to be a late thunderstorm and rain for about 3 days. i guess thats what happens when it gets so hot, the sky explodes.

    The sun was actually shining here for a few days, grey again now. I can’t wait to see what you have done to your beautiful boat, It looks so cosy with the delicate twinkle of fairy lights.

    It is fresh, crisp and wintery here in Oxford, UK. I just cycled through the town all muffled up in scarf and gloves.

    I like that song, I hadn’t heard it before 🙂

    It’s raining here too… I’d better head indoors and play some music too…

    Good morning, Sweet Pia! We truly had our rainstorms (I live close to the Windy City-ChiTown) in the past 2 weeks…felt like we had to build an Ark soon…but alas, this week seems very ‘Fallish’-cool 50-60’s yet sunny days…great sweater, boots & hat days.

    What an inspiring corner of your home…warm piano tunes under soft glows of twinkling lights…ahhh, how peaceful + relaxing…wish I could just pull up a warm cup of tea, soft pjs and drift away in your music…ps. cool tunes/video pps. thanks for the ‘autumn swap’ info…thinking of joining in on the fun! xo jo 😉

    Love the song! It makes me feel really in a lazy weekend mood. I was working today on my blog, but I miss working here with the door open. And drinking my coffee in the morning with the sun in my face.It is so cold here in Rotterdam.

    Hailing in Brussels a couple of days ago (made me think of you :)… Other than that, it’s cold cold cold… and it mainly rains. Sunny today though….! thank god. Which probably means it’s quite cold out there, but still…
    Back to eating porridge and drinking loads of ginger tea at the moment.
